Sexy ‘Lettuce Ladies’ to Cool Off Congress With Veggie Dog Lunch

PETA's Bevy of Beauties Will Give Away Vegan Franks and Dairy-Free Ice Cream Sandwiches

Wearing only strategically placed lettuce leaves, five of PETA’s sexy “Lettuce Ladies” will dish up Tofurky veggie dogs tomorrow at PETA’s annual Congressional Veggie Dog Lunch. And to help congressional staffers beat the heat, the “Lettuce Ladies” will also give away dairy-free Tofutti Cuties frozen treats and fan the crowds with oversized fans that proclaim, “Go Vegan!”

Where:           Outside the Rayburn House Office Building (beside the main entrance), Independence Avenue S.W., between S. Capitol Street S.E. and First Street S.W., Washington

When:             Thursday, July 14, 12 noon

“PETA’s ‘Lettuce Ladies’ are ready to heat up Capitol Hill with leafy bikinis and cool it down again with delicious dairy-free ice cream sandwiches,” says PETA Director Ashley Byrne. “If you want to help the environment, your health, or animals, you can start by choosing a veggie dog over a tube of pig intestines.”

In addition to having a smaller carbon footprint, each person who goes vegan spares more than 100 animals a year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s industrialized meat, egg, and dairy industries. Vegans also have a reduced risk of suffering from heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, and strokes.
